  • Sunday Trails

“Sunday Trails” is the third release in a three-part series of brilliant deep house by San Francisco producer Mark Slee. Like the previous two releases, the sound palate here is tight, tasteful, funky, and built on a rock-solid foundation of deep house music. “Moleskine” opens the release with a light-treading groove that gives way to a floaty melody before seamlessly rising to an energy peak. “Saddlebag” is perhaps the deepest of the lot, with classic groove and horns, and “Knapswitch” explores the fringes of deep progressive layering and texture.

Mark Slee is a San Francisco based producer, DJ, and visual artist. As a DJ he is a co-founder of the House-Heads collective, host of the mix show “Heron Sound” on Proton Radio, and is a member of the esteemed Listed Bookings roster which represents some of the most well regarded underground techno and deep house artists in the US. Additionally, he is one half of Manju Masi, a collaboration with long-time partner in crime Atish.
Mark Slee’s music production centers around a deep house sound that comfortably navigates pathways through intricate contemplative grooves, light dreamy textures, and playful whimsical bounce. His most recent tracks have appeared on Loöq Records, Tanampa and Cityfox.
Mark is also an accomplished visual artist whose work centers around structured systems of addressable LED lights. Drawing on a background in computer programming, he develops algorithmic patterns inspired both by organic and mathematical processes, employing procedural motion, subtle variation, and evolving shifts in both form and hue. Completed works include LED installations in spaces as varied as temporary events, Burning Man, clubs, social spaces, and even as part of an architectural design feature at Facebook HQ.
